Popular Support for Democracy in Unified Germany: Critical Democrats

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This book examines attitudes towards democracy in the Federal Republic of Germany. The study examines four aspects of the political system: how it functions overall, attitudes towards the Basic Law, trust in representative institutions and views of the European Union. Rather than accepting or rejecting democracy, the research shows how and why Germans merge shades of support. The findings challenge suggestions of a crisis of democracy but they also demonstrate that support is particularly low towards aspects of the European Union. This book appeals to readers interested in the changing relationship between citizens and the state.
